Much work has been done to exploit the effectiveness and efficiency of job scheduling upon distributed computational resources. With regard to existing resource topology and administrative constraints, scheduling approaches are designed for different hierarchic layers, for example, scheduling for job queues of local resource management systems (local scheduling), and scheduling for job queues of high level schedulers (also known as meta-schedulers or grid schedulers). Such scheduling approaches mainly focus on optimizing job queues of the hosting nodes, which are interconnected with computational resources directly or indirectly.
